Cave Paintings

What are theyCave paintings are paintings found on cave walls and ceilings, and especially refer to those of prehistoric origin. The earliest such art in Europe dates back to approximately 40,000 years ago, and is found in the El Castillo cave in Cantabria, Spain. The exact purpose of the paleolithic cave paintings is not known.CommunicationEvidence suggests that they were not decorations of living areas, because the caves in which they have been found do not have signs of ongoing habitation. They are also often located in areas of caves that are not easy to get to. Some theories hold that cave paintings may have been a way of communicating with others.Cave paintings have been found all around the world which gives some evidence that they did it to communicate with one another.


Why?Symbols were used in the early ages to communicate with other much easier and to make a lot more sense.

The imperfection of speech, which nonetheless allowed easier creation of inventions and ideas which led to the creation of symbols improving both the range at which people could communicate and the longevity of the information. All of those inventions were based on the key concept of the symbol a conventional representation of a concept.

Carrier Pigeons

What are theyCarrier or messenger pigeon is a homing pigeon that is used to carry messages. Using pigeons to carry messages is generally called pigeon post. Most homing or racing type varieties are used to carry messages. There is no specific breed. Carrier pigeons that are the basic Racing Homer were used to carry messages in World War I and World War II.

pigeons carried messages only one way, to their home. They had to be transported manually before another flight. However, by placing their food at one location and their home at another location, pigeons have been trained to fly back and forth up to twice a day reliably, covering round-trip flights up to 160km.

With training, pigeons can carry up to 75g on their backs. The German apothecary Julius Neubronner used carrier pigeons to deliver urgent medication to hospitals and homes.

Pigeons were used before and during the world war as there was no radio technology at the time so they were very effective to send urgent messages and deliver small packages
